Mystery Quilt Along Finish!!

I got a late start on the Mystery Quilt Along hosted by

Fortunately in mid-March, my jobs slowed down enough for me to have a few fun afternoons to spend in my sewing room.
Just in time, too, because this project was due March 31st! 

The challenge started January 1st when the rules were posted. I love simple challenges that don't have a LOT of requirements. This definitely fell into that wonderful category! All that was required was to use a specific fabric using the pattern and project of your choice. 

This is the fabric we needed to use: 

It's called Biscuits and Gravy - You Be You in Fluffer Nutter Blue
and made by Moda.
When I saw it online, I thought it was more of a gray color, but it's really more like a green/blue. Very pretty and as I found out, it coordinates well with many fabrics I had in my stash! 

I settled on a lovely charm pack that I had long admired, but hadn't found the perfect project for....yet!

This is such a pretty collection called High Street by Lily Ashbury for Moda.
It mingled well with Fluffer Nutter!

I searched on Pinterest for blocks using charm packs
and found I had a gazillion choices.

I got started by making a gazillion half-square triangles.
I wanted to play with the blocks before deciding on a pattern. 

So many choices! I loved them all!

This is the layout I loved the most. 
Here is Jax showing his approval. 

Why is it that of all the places a dog can rest,
they always choose to lay on the fabric???

I shared this photo on Instagram (follow me @ _duchick_) and it made me smile.
I was ready to close the sewing room door for the day when I turned around to take a last peek. I was happy. 

Below are photos of the finished runner on my dining room table. It's finished just in time for Easter. 

This table runner measures 19" wide x 50" long.

I kinda love it!

Thanks Tracy and Cindy for hosting this Mystery Quilt Along!

  1. I love it, too! The colors are so very Easter-like and it looks adorable with the bunny piece in the middle. What a great idea.

  2. Hi Kathy! Your table runner is beautiful! Perfect for Easter with the sunny fabrics. The combination with the Fluffer Nutter works so seamlessly. And the backing fabric is gorgeous too! I can see why it is “Jax approved “ 😊

  3. I love it, beautiful fresh colours, perfect for spring ♥

  4. Hi Kathy,
    I love your choice for the HSTs and it is a difficult choice to make isn't it?! I ended up making a table runner with this fabric as well. I love your finish and it looks really great on your table with the little bunnies. Dogs crack me up - of course they lay on the fabric - they sense you are taking a picture of it and want to photo bomb it! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. So many pretty colors and I love your little helper! Adorable!
